It’s a bit of a problem talking about ‘giving’ and ‘donation’ when everything Fredericks stands for is about lending and paying back. The whole ‘hand up not hand out’ strapline could sound hypocritical in the context of a blog post that is blatantly asking for gifts. The simple message is though that we help people with people and we help people with loans. The money comes back but the people cost money. All those of you who have met our hard-pressed client managers will know how thinly stretched they are. If you give up your time or your resources to support us then we salute you for it. You are fantastic and heroic!
But this week: Thursday, Friday and Saturday (4, 5 and 6 December 2014) at 10am there is an opportunity to make a little money work by turning it into a little more money. The Big Give will lever in additional finance for Fredericks, bringing in a match from Reed Foundation which has generously chosen to support us.
So please set an alert on your phone for 9.58am in time to gather up your battered credit card and click here: http://bit.ly/fredsbiggive
